SOCRATES Restaurant on Hudson & Franklin Sts.

I've eaten at this place a number of times looking at it as simple diner food and I must say - it has gotten WORSE & WORSE as time has progressed .

Normally I wouldn't write about one bad food experience and I wouldn't normally condemn a place after a slight bad meal but after receiving
cold food on 2 different occasions and one mild case of food poisoning I feel that I must write this .

I even tried to contact the owner and only got as far as the manager George (he refused to tell me the owner's name) and when I told him about the food I had received he did not even apologize . When I then told him on another occasion about my illness after eating his food he stated that it could not have been from his food . Talk about rude .

So, I say to you diners out there - AVOID this place like the plague .
